“I was so happy and excited I almost cried,” said Rodriguez. “We did better than the last time we played Cherokee and were not just kicking the ball around as usual. We’re playing as a team.”

Rodriguez’s cousin BREC Brenda Rodriguez said the improvement compared to the last time they played Cherokee was obvious.

“We weren’t kicking the ball around just to kick it,” said Brenda. “We played as a unit to move the ball and didn’t just feed it to the fastest player.”
